Giving kids the real low down on how to apply for jobs

I've been in recruitment for 23yrs, the market has changed so much now that only the top talent gets hired, I am now concerned that thousands of young adults leave education with a terrible grasp of the job seeker basics, how to write CV's, what to say at interview, who to go to for advice. I want to reach out to those kids and find a way to get them what they need, delivered in the way they want not from some crusty careers advice person who has never worked in the real world - So I was wondering if mumsnet members think I should continue to try and create a business to reach out to schools, youth clubs, colleges etc or if the existing careers structure actually does what you need?? Any help useful before I commit more hard cash to this!

Can't see how you would make a profit doing this in all honesty - who would pay you for the service? How would you convince parents or youth clubs etc to pay you rather than using existing, free options?
